Problem is, he didn’t actually manage to hit any of the eminently mockable aspects of the book, from its predatory creepiness to its own racist profiling (of white women). I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.’” Harvey was delighted at his skewering of the book, doubling over at his own punchlines.As an Asian man born in China but raised in the US, I feel there’s been a dearth of understanding of the Asian male’s experience.It’s not often discussed, either between our own community, and with society at large, and we all suffer because of it.So I like said above, this is going to be a series of posts.“I’m open to dating women of all backgrounds,” he tells me.
In late fall of 2015, I ran a survey of 354 Asian men living in the United States on their experiences at work, in dating, and in day to day life.“Except for black women.”“I’ve just never been attracted to Asian men,” she says. Unfortunately, the vast majority of singles I’ve worked with have clear racial preferences and biases when it comes to dating.Now that I’m four years into professional matchmaking, I’ve seen clear patterns emerge when it comes to race and attraction. Women of every racial background seem to strongly prefer dating you.They are the hardest singles for me to match, because they tend to be excluded from the match searches of the majority of clients.Men seemingly open to dating “anyone and everyone” eventually include a “no black women” addendum. The online dating world is also stacked against black women and Asian men.And yes I know I'm not a relationship expert, a PUA, or even a wingwoman. Indeed men are men, but there's still a fairly large gap in dating when it comes to black women and Asian men.
